Nope, No Fujifilm X-T5 Announcement during X Summit on September 8

Share

After Fujifilm disclosed the date of the next Fujifilm X summit and announced it September 8 at 2PM New York time, people started emailing me but also expressing their hopes on our social media channels, that we will get the Fujifilm X-T5 on September 8.

Sorry guys, but what we can tell you with 100% certainty that there won’t be any Fujifilm X-T5 announcement in September.

The main course of the meal on September 8th will be the Fujifilm X-H2. And of course there can be more, as Fujfiilm has already officially announced the following gear to come in 2022:

I am working on it and will let you know what will come (and what eventually not) on September 8th.

These Fujifilm Products Won the EISA Awards

Share

Many years ago a bunch of people had a brilliant idea: why don’t we team up to give away meaningless awards that companies will pay us lots of money to “win”.

The idea turned out to be extremely successful.

Since then, once a year, on a tropical island sipping their mojito’s, a group of people meets with the difficult task to make up as many categories as possible to make every brand win and maximize their profits.

Today the concept still works, the tropical islands have fast WiFi, and selecting winners has become more fun than ever.

Anyone out there who wants to team up with to create an award?

We can discuss this idea on my all time favorite place in the Caribbeans (where I jumped from 46 feet cliff as you can see here).

* this is a satirical post (sort of)

And the Award goes to…

Japanese Fujifilm Manager: “Long Debate if to go Full Frame or Medium Format and Fujifilm X-T1 Saved the X Series”

Share

Japanese Fujifilm Mr. Takashi Ueno released an interview to Map Camera on youtube.

It’s all in Japanese, but the guys over at dclife provided a summary of it, which I will share down below.

  • Fujifilm X-T1 was the first camera to put Fujifilm’s future stake, and luckily it sold very strong
  • without Fujifilm X-T1 the manager would not make this interview today [meaning Fujifilm would not have continued the X series if the X-T1 would have failed]
  • Fujifilm deliberately chose not to go full frame
  • it’s not that by doubling the mounts Fujifilm would have also doubled their R&D resources. The resources remain the same
  • for those who wanted larger sensors, it was not good for Fujifilm to tell those customers to look for other brands. Customers who liked the Fujifilm colors and concept. So Fujifilm decided to add the GFX system for them
  • there was a long internal discussion if they should go full frame or medium format [admin note: FujiRumors has the true internal story on the moment that convinced Fujifilm to go Medium Format]
  • The X series will continue to evolve
  • All camera products are the same, but the functions of cameras today are completely different from what they were 10 years ago, and I think the expectations people have for cameras are changing rapidly. On the other hand, I don’t think it’s a good thing to stay the same without changing, and I want to keep the basics in mind, but I want to evolve by properly grasping the needs of users.“.

The X-T series is the one camera that more than any other camera combined determinates Fujifilm success and future. This is why the Fujifilm X-T5 will be crucial.

This were just the bullet points. I will also share the full Google translated part for you:
